MN Conference UCC Youth Camp is Going ONLINE!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving this summer’s Youth Camp online! Join us for a time each morning and afternoon, June 29 – July 1, to re-connect and support each other as a community.
This year’s youth camp is about RESILIENCE: What is resilience? What does it look like? What if you feel un-resilient? (Hint: That’s normal!)
The Theater of Public Policy is collaborating with Conference staff and volunteers to help create virtual spaces using the Zoom platform to ask important questions, explore skills around resilience, support authentic emotional expression & just connect.
Each day of camp will include:
  • Live music
  • Games and creative activities with the Theater of Public Policy
  • Small group projects
  • Spaces for processing and sharing in small groups
  • Virtual camp fires
All youth currently enrolled in grades 6-12 are invited to participate in this event. Register HERE, and contact Rev. Sheri Nelson, Outdoor Ministry Program Director, with questions about the online youth camp experience. We hope to see you on Zoom!

Cancellations

In response to recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health, all in-person outdoor ministry and faith formation programs scheduled during April, May and early June have been cancelled and/or postponed, including the Meditation Retreat, Courage to Lead program, and Spring 2020 Conference Youth Event.

These are indeed challenging days, filled with much uncertainty and many difficult decisions. And in the midst of the current chaos is the Spirit’s call to be a faithful and courageous Church. May we imagine together new and relevant ways to connect our communities, express care for our neighbors, and live Christ’s transforming love in the world.
